Appreciation towards dongqi Architects for providing the following description:


Designed by dongqi Architects, Changzhou C.F. Café reveals a cheerful and modest branding character by spatial redefining and material selection.

▼空间概览,interior overview



The idea of open market space is introduced into the concept design. The space is required to have Bakery, coffee making and juice making areas, which are redefined by using three curved bar counters respectively. People move through different areas or chatting alongside each area just like roaming inside an open market, giving an active, dynamic and pleasing atmosphere.

Stainless steel, terrazzo and exposed aggregate finish are the main materials and crafts for the space.

▼用餐区,dining area


3/4 of the bar top is made of stainless steel, while the rest of the bar top including the side of the bar counter is made of terrazzo and exposed aggregate. The shiny terrazzo gradually fuses into the rough exposed aggregate finish by exquisite skills of craftsmen. The materials altogether show a mixed character of modernity and tradition.

▼吧台细部,bar counter detail


Three curved caps on top of each bar counter, using exposed aggregate finish, concave into the whole ceiling and highlight each area. The curved bar counters merge into the wall and create the concaved stainless steel walls for showcase.

The inner façade incorporates terrazzo bar table and transparent glass. The entrance, curving inward, echoes the curved elements of the space and welcomes the people come and forth.
